Liebherr-Aerospace is to provide the landing gear and air management system for China’s Comac C919 airliner, the Franco-German equipment manufacturer announced on Wednesday. Under the contract signed at the Singapore Airshow with the Shanghai-based airframer, Liebherr’s Lindenberg, Germany, site will develop, supply and service the landing gear. For development and production, it has formed a joint venture with Avic subsidiary Landing-Gear Advanced Manufacturing Co., based in Changsha, province of Hunan.

Meanwhile, Liebherr’s Toulouse, France, factory will develop, supply and service the air management system. It includes bleed air, air conditioning, air distribution, cabin pressure control, wing anti-ice and avionics ventilation systems. Thanks to a focus on integration, there will be only two controllers to manage all air-related functions.

For development and manufacturing of some air management components, Liebherr-Aerospace will cooperate with the Nanjing Engineering Institute of Aircraft Systems in China.
